A typical day was to collect or prepare measurement, weigh, or identification labels, and attach them to products. Learned how to compare product labels, tags, or tickets, shipping manifests, purchase orders, and bills of lading to verify accuracy of shipping contents, quality specifications, and/or weights. Management was outstanding, workplace culture was fast paced, hardest part of the job was unloading the freight trucks by hand when shipment came loose, had fun at work good work environment.

The work you do is not worth the pay. You make minimum pay and not everyone does what they're supposed to do so you're working twice as hard. The main manager doesn't help solve any problems with the employees who don't work. Their is sales every month and it is hectic and won't leave work till 10 pm or later. Always changing rules and procedures but managers don't inform you of new rules.
Work with your schedule
Minimum wage, some employee don't do their jobs, crazy people go there.

The Texas thrift store is a terrible place to work for so little pay. The manangemt literally does not do anything at all and doesn't know where anything is located in the store. The employees literally know more than the management about the store
Every job is different even if it is the same field.I have learned at this job that management are not professional talking about the personal daily life or problems did not agree with their work environment surrounding learned to keep to yourself and not to speak your mind if all management are friends or relatives.

We're like family. Its a fun place to work because you get to play dress up on Holidays. You get to meet all sorts of people. Hardest part of the job dealing with some of the customers as like any other job dealing with customers. I think they ought to give raises once a year to bring down the high turn over.
We get free lunch when we have our Holiday sales.
Our breakroom is to small.they ought to give raises at least once a year.
Was a good and easy job. Needs different Managers who really care about their employees. Enjoyed traveling around to different places during the day. Liked the hours. Liked the other drivers. The only thing wrong was that when I had a special they wouldn't send someone else to help lift the heavy furniture. I really enjoyed this job.
I worked as the Sales Floor Supervisor. I was in charge to open the store in the morning, count the deposit and make sure the floor was representable. I also did the daily computer input, answered the phone and camera reviews. I was in charge of the cashiers and floor personel, did their schedules and had input on new hires. I learned a lot during my time at Texas Thrift, handling busy days and multitask. I loved my Management and the employees at Home Office. Everyone had always and open ear and answer for my questions. My co workers were awesome and I miss everyone dearly. The hardest part of the job was to get everything in order. I kinda got thrown in the cold water, but I managed. Unfortunately I had to leave this job, because my husband got stationed in Washington.
